"The Pomona Deal Has To Be Stopped" - Mnangagwa Challenger

Sybeth Musengezi, a ZANU PF activist who is popularly known for challenging President Emmerson Mnangagwa‘s ascendancy to power has rallied Harare residents to oppose the Pomona waste-to-energy project saying it is a ploy to milk residents of their money.

The US$344 million Pomona deal is between the City of Harare and Albanian entity Geogenix BV fronted by Dylish Nguwaya, a local businessman.

According to the Harare-Geogenix BV agreement, Harare should pay US$40 per tonne of garbage for the estimated 550 tonnes per day delivery or a damage fee of US$3.5 million.

Analysts say Harare does not have the capacity to deliver 550 tonnes of garbage per day, therefore, the deal was designed to fail which means Geogenix will be paid for doing nothing.

In a Twitter post seen by Pindula News, Musengezi said residents should stop being preoccupied with stupid things and focus. He said:

Usanetseke neNetOne airtime.

Baya *405# utenge neEcoCash

The Pomona deal has to be stopped. Our leaders and their friends have no shame, vakuda kuba nekumarara kwese. They want to milk Zimbabweans from every angle. However isu vacho ndisu takazungaira (residents are stupid) we spend days posting about zvigunwe nekuromba asi tichibirwa takasvinura.

Harare councillors last week announced the suspension of the deal following public outroar over the deal which is said to be a ploy to fleece the country.

In response to the suspension, the Minister of Local Government and Public Works, July Moyo has said the Pomona Waste to Energy Project “will not be stopped” adding that enough consultations were made and due process followed.

Meanwhile, Geogenix BV has already sent a US$750 000 bill to the Harare City Council after the company drilled a borehole and constructed a four-roomed house at the site.
